Talk about taking paper airplanes to a whole new level! Who would have thought you can transform a piece of a paper into such a masterpiece of entire cities, balconies, tiny windows, even tiny people! Dutch artist, Ingrid Siliakus, begins with a 90 degree fold to give her mini cityscapes depth and dimension, with the end result eerily similar to pop-up books. It takes 20-30 prototypes for Ingrid to land the final design, which she says “working with paper forces me to be humble, since this medium has a character of its own that asks for cooperation.”
We certainly don’t have that much patience, do you?
